    Emma’s practice uses playful humour to reflect on gender diversity through painting, drawing and collage. Cryptic social narratives visualise the integration of new systems of thought as they appear in society. The complexities and nuances associated with these are evident in the subject matter, which is painted as though it’s under a never-ending spell of déjà vu. Celebration, alienation, confusion and displacement are described through heightened colour fields and assemblage techniques, concocting visual slippages between real and imagined figures and spaces. Colour-play leads the viewer back to the earlier construction of the paintings as collages and the cinematic technique – flashback – is used as an artistic device to play with time and place. Through the construction of these otherworldly paintings I approach gender diversity as an open-ended narrative imbued with complexity but open to great possibility. Emma studied painting at Dunedin School of Art, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2009. She is currently studying towards a Master of Fine Arts at Elam School of Art.
